The Easter break is about to conclude and the NASCAR Cup and NXS drivers will be heading to “The Last Colosseum”, better know as Bristol Motor Speedway for the Food City 500 this weekend.
Last August’s Bristol winner Kevin Harvick will go for his second consecutive victory at the Tennessee track Sunday. The No. 4 Ford driver led 128 laps last summer to beat Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to the finish line by 1.933 seconds. Denny Hamlin, Austin Dillon and Chris Buescher rounded out the top five.
In 32 starts at Bristol, Harvick owns two wins, 11 top fives, 15 top 10s and a 15.4 average finish. He boasts the second-best average running position (12.2) and third-best driver rating (95.7) at the .533-mile track.
“Freaky Fast” Harvick ranks first in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series with 419 laps led (19.6%) this season.
He is currently 10th in the points standings (117 markers behind leader Kyle Larson) and holds three playoff points as a result of his three stage wins.
Can Harvick make it two wins in a row?
